Hi I'm Hilaree

I'm a nurse. I love art and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a nurse and I love it! I really love that I got to go to school to learn how to be a more caring person. I am currently single and look forward to one day having a family of my own, but for now I go to work and live with my wonderful parents. I really love art and I almost went to school to become an architect instead of a nurse, but nursing felt more right. I love buildings, especially old ones. I've always wanted to go to Italy so see the city on water. I also love roller-coasters and hot dogs, preferably not together! I have always wanted to live on the coast, but I live in the desert in Arizona. I like warm weather, water fights, and ice cream. I've been to Africa and Taiwan, my two favorite places besides home. I love my family. I come from a family of nine that is getting bigger and bigger each year and I love them all!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I want to be happy! The lessons that are taught in the mormon church and the lessons I study in the scriptures all teach me about how I can be happy. It isn't always easy to be happy, but Christ's Gospel gives me hope and assures me that I can be happy. It brings peace and joy into my life. I know that Christ lives and He has made it possible for all of us to be happy. We need to choose to follow Him and He will show us the way to forever happiness. I am trying very hard to follow Him. He has helped me to be happy and I know that He will help me, always. I am a mormon because the mormon church is full of truth. The Book of Mormon is truth and it brings joy and hope into my life. I know that God loves me because He has sent a prophet to us in these modern times. There is a prophet and he is called of God. I believe in Christ and I know his true church is on the Earth today! This is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by visiting friends and helping them with whatever they need help with. I believe that service is an amazing way to live my faith, so I try to help everyone I can. I help people clean and organize their homes. I help babysit my nieces and nephews so my siblings can work and help others. Another way I live my faith is by sharing my faith with my friends. I love my faith and I want others to know what I believe and why I choose to be a mormon. I want them to know that I love and live my faith.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

One of the best ways to come to know your Heavenly Father is by talking to Him through prayer. When I pray, I thank Him for the things He has given me and how He has helped me. When I give thanks, I am reminded of His love for me. In my prayers, I also ask for His help and continual love. I ask to know Him better and He answers with feelings of peace. joy, and love. To know heavenly Father you can also read and study the scriptures. There are many stories and testimonies of our Heavenly Father in the scriptures. These stories and testimonies can help you to know Heavenly Father and of His love for you! Show more Show less
